And, I've gotta say, reading comic books is really hard for me... I am powering through because I want to know the story but I sure do wish it were a novel..

I've had the same problem at first and while I'll always prefer novels, reading the buffy comics... I've come to appreciate comic books a bit more.

Of course you might still dislike it, but I think it takes a couple of issues to get used to it and even then, season 8 is not the easiest season to read because Joss went a bit too far with the comic format and it felt (at least to me) like the story wasn't grounded enough, and very far from the verse we knew and loved.

Good luck! And I hope you'll be able to enjoy reading them.

Like most of my generation, I was a big fan of the Marvel superhero books back in the late 60's and early 70's, but I gave it up after that (except for the Death/Return of Superman arcs) so reading the Buffy comics has taken a bit of readjusting to get back into the genre.
